Which Maté Is Best For You?
“Yerba is more than just a drink. It is a health
infusion. Rich in Antioxidants and Nutrients
Yerba mate contains many, many health
benefits because of the nutrients in the plant.”
Even though yerba mate has caffeine, most caffeine-sensitive individuals don’t experience the harsh side effects (jitters, stomach upset, headaches, addiction) common with coffee and black or green tea. That’s because yerba mate has a low tannin content and isn’t oily and acid forming, so it is less likely to cause stomach acid and jitters.
The indigenous people of the area in South America in which the Ilex paraguariensis tree grows, used yerba mate tea for centuries, not only as a social beverage, but also as a medicinal one. Scientific research done over only the last two decades is revealing many health benefits that will be discussed elsewhere on this website.
Whether you are seeking an invigorating coffee alternative, or simply looking to try something new, yerba mate is a wonderful herbal tea option. Now you can enjoy yerba mate in loose-leaf form, letting you experience the tea the authentic South American way.
